Most of the headstones in Chicago’s Irving Park Cemetery are the run-of-the-mill variety one sees at many cemeteries.
I took hundreds of photos for Find A Grave when I visited the cemetery in July of 2015.
As I was leaving, the sun caught a large white headstone on my left.
The feeling of deep loss captured in stone caused me to stand for several minutes in silence.
Only a noisy car alarm in the distance brought me back to the present.
